Honors

RISD formally recognizes students who achieve high grade-point averages each semester and at graduation. Students who graduate with a cumulative grade-point average of at least 3.75 will have their degree conferred with honors.

Students who achieve a semester grade-point average of at least 3.75 with a minimum of 12 credits will be considered for honors at the end of each semester. Courses taken at Brown through cross-registration must be taken within the A, B, C letter-grade system in order for these credits to apply toward the minimum of 12 credits required for consideration for semester honors.
